Whooping Cough/Pertussis (Tdap) Vaccine required for School Entry in 2013-2014
New legislation REQUIRES that all students entering grades 7th thru 12th grade must receive a Tdap booster immunization prior to next year’s school enrollment.
Failure to meet the requirement will result in your student being unable to enroll in classes for the new school year.
Please send/bring your student’s proof of the Pertussis booster immunization to the health office for documentation.
You can check your immunization records for the following “DTap/Tdap/DTP” on or after their 7th birthday (Td does not meet the requirement) or feel free to contact the school health office to verify most recent date (696-1406ext 4093)
Please note this immunization is in addition to other DTP, Dtap, or Td immunizations
